How do I do it guys ?
My odometer is broken. Inspired by several posts I decided to fix it. Whent trough hell puling my cluster out (stuck preaty bad). Finaly took the hole thing apart and got stuck with the speedometer nidle. Have not even a slitest idea how to get it of.
I also noticed that other nidles look a lil bit diferent than the speedometer. How do I get them of? I want to make and instal my own wite gouges (scaner, fotoshop and a good printer and paper should do it) so I will need to get all of them out first.

Watch it!

I broke the pin that holds the needle on my tachometer doing this. They have to come out straigh up, with no sideway motions to loosen them. If you are determined to do it maybe use a noseplyer and have the pine sit in the middle and just pull by the very tip of the plier and from the handle evenly.

Before you do anything you might want to take pics of how the needle sit on their of possition, at their one position, and at 1000rpm, at 20 or 10mph. This will help you to verify if they are working fine onece you put them back together.

or you can take it to a local speedo shop and see if they can do something for you

Good luck
